Inside Pepper's

Pepper's Foods Newsletter, January 28, 2020

Pepper's Foods Newsletter, January 28, 2020

Good morning!  Do you remember what you were doing on the morning of January 28, 1986? 40 million Americans watched as the Space Shuttle Challenger disintegrated 73 seconds after it took flight, carrying what would have been the first teacher into space, Christa McAuliffe. It was a dark day for NASA and struck a huge blow to the US space program. Everyone could have used some serious levity during this time but one of the most popular television comedies of all time had been off ther air since February 28, 1983. And if you're not sure just which show we're talking about, today is also the birthday of its star, Alan Alda, born January 28, 1936.

Ok, let's get going with the new products! First up are three new types of pickles from Strub's! New Strub's Crispy Pickle Chips, Crispy Baby Dill Pickles and Dill Pickle Sandwich Stackers can all be found in our Produce Department just inside the front doors. Proudly Canadian, this Ontario company has been making tangy, crunchy and delicious dills out of Canadian cucumbers since 1929!

This is the time of year for eating soup. These dark, dreary and rainy days can become a little more tolerable when some tasty, hot and comforting soup gets served up. So naturally we were delighted to be able to stock Soupa Cafe Soups in our frozen food aisle! With two dine-in locations in Victoria, (View Street and Toyota on Douglas) they now offer nutritious and delicious soups in retail stores. Pepper's currently stocks Red Lentil Mulligatawny (Vegan), Coconut Yam (gluten friendly, vegan), Chicken Stew (gluten friendly) and Chili Con Carne (gluten friendly). They're all made with simple, natural ingredients for a truly unique and homemade taste!

Another local product that just hit the shelves is from Owen Farm in Saanichton! These farm fresh, large brown eggs will go swimmingly together with new Continental Black Forest Bacon! Here's a little blurb about this company, taken from their website:

Continental Sausage is an artisan deli meat producer in South Surrey, BC. We have been quietly making the finest quality European delicatessen products possible for over half a century. When you support Continental Sausage, you are supporting over 30 employees and their families in your community, as well as local Fraser Valley Farmers who provide us with most of our raw materials. Two German master sausage makers (Meisters) oversee our traditional recipes and processes so we can bring you a fresh, authentic, artisan made product of the highest quality. Always hand made and produced in small batches. Our business is supported by delicatessens, butcher shops and restaurants that bring consumers fine locally sourced products. Continental Sausage is exclusive to British Columbia and found nowhere else. 

If you're looking for an exceptionally gourmet seasoning for your next great dinner (or breakfast) then try La Madia Regale Truffle Sea Salt! It seems only fitting that since pigs are used to snuffle about for truffles, this salt should be used on your bacon! If you love the aroma and flavour of truffles then you'll simply have to pick up this fine Italian salt!

However, if you really want to spice things up Club House Tasty Spices are sure to pack a mighty flavour whollop onto your meals! Available in Fiery, Zesty, Hearty, Jazzy and Savoury, each spice blend has its own unique characterisitics for whatever you're cooking! Right now they live on the shelf just inside the front doors, on the left. But hopefully soon, they'll live in your kitchen cupboard!

Up until now we've talked about all savoury items. Well, it's time for dessert! And we're going to start with Waterbridge Cookie Barrel Fingers. They're "enrobed" in milk chocolate and they make the perfect accompaniment to your afternoon tea or coffee. Perfect for your next social or book club gathering, these delicate cookie biscuits will be a hit with everyone! But no one will eat just one, that's for sure!

And new to our Deli Department is English Bay Mini Cookies! Just like the chocolate coated finger cookie biscuits, you'll soon find that you've eaten six or seven because they taste so darn good. And then you might as well just have one or two more. And since everybody else will do the same thing you might just as well pick up two containers while you're at it. Get 'em in Chocolate Chip, Oatmeal Raisin and Toffee Mint! Yum!

Be sure to check out our Chinese New Year inspired advertised specials. It's also geared towards that big NFL football game that can't be named because it is a registered trademark of the NFL (since 1969). But let's just throw caution to the wind and say it straight up: If you're watching the Super Bowl on Super Sunday, then Pepper's has everything you're going to need for that Super Bowl party you're hosting! From chicken wings to chips, soft drinks to firm tofu (What?! Tofu eaters like football, too!) we have it all. So get serious about the Super Bowl and get everything at Pepper's!

See you soon!
